2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (April) – Bale’s VP is VIP

Christian Bale (Untitled Dick Cheney biopic) holds onto the #1 spot, a phrase I feel like I will repeat quite often this year.

  Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s By The Sea attempts to break down and humanize two of the most alien and illustrious faces in Hollywood in an intimate setting.
